Got to say, even though the recording is so-so that one cool version of Eyes. I like some others better but for a change of pace.......wow.

Subject: The show is a beauty, the only question is: AUD or SBD?
I first got into this through the Dick's Pick (vol. 20). The whole show shines, particularly the LIG>GDTRFB and the whole Playin' extravaganza. I partcularly love the Alternative Spanish jam after Eyes.

The only question remains: do you choose the SBD or the AUD?
SBD: It's clean, but flat as a board.
AUD: A little muddy but very big and beautiful, especially the drums. The crowd response is also perfect. Listen to the fans swell with joy at Jerry's first subbbblime turn in Goin' Down the Road.

Anyway I think you should choose this aud over the SBD.

Subject: One of the Best of 1976
As a 1976 junkie, this one has been bursting from my speakers on a regular basis for over 25 years. This is a classic AUD recording and really captures that "I'm there" feeling.

1st set highlights are a fabulous "Tennessee Jed" and the "Let It Grow" > "GDTRFB" closer. BLAZING stuff!

The 2nd set is one long journey through GD heaven, one of my all-time favorites, seriously inspired from the first note to the last. "The Wheel" is just just incredible incredible, perhaps my favorite version ever. "Comes A Time" is also a serious highlight in a set full of them.

I can't say enough about this SUPERB gem of a show, particularly the 2nd set. The SDBD is a tad dry compared to this great AUD, but get your hands on this show As Soon As Possible, in either format!

Subject: awsome show
just an awsome show, gota love the long grouping inside the playin itb, offering op's to space out and create, not just transitions, but interstital stand alone music, very cool. also worth checking out the july orpheum run for similar work.

email me at fieldhouse11277@hotmail.com happy to share the full soundboard with some good listeners.

Subject: My first Dead Concert
What a concert! It was the first time I saw the band and they blew my doors off. I got to see them the next year at Colgate, then a 2 years later in Buffalo and shortly thereafter I saw Jerry in his own band at Brockport. It always amazed me how each show could be so different, (I suppose it could have been the state of mind I was in each time as well). However, I must say this was by far the best. It was electric and just seemed to grow with each song. Thank you for posting this 31 year old memory!!!

Great Show! 4.8 star show, 3 star audio quality - not bad for the era.

In da good ol days, before they pulled the SBDs, I used to ignore muddy AUDs...but now I'm discovering shows like this one are VERY enjoyable, despite the less than perfect audio quality. War Memorial seems to be one of those arenas where the band was consistently ON....check out the 82/83 shows there.

Subject: Zerocuse
The sound is not that bad and it allows alot of the harmonics of Phil especially to come through when he thumps those high notes - Whole first set is rocking and rowdy with an EXCEPTIONAL Tenn Jed, sweeeeeet FOTD (which I do not believe would sound as good on a board) but the real smoker is Let it Grow in a year known for some unbelievably hot show stopping versions....

In addition this is the only Let it Grow>GDTRFB I think they ever played and the Playin>Wheel is nice but the Sampson crushes it. Eyes and the jam out / dancin are really great as well...

Subject: crummy
this one sounds pretty crummy. this is one of my, if not the, favorite eyez. the preceeding jam is also a gem. only problem is... THIS SHOW IS A DP! so, unless i bring my cds to work with me, then i am forced to listen to a crummy version of a great show. someone PLEASE clean this up and post again so that this will hopefully get some more attention. tx.
